There was an ugly, black one that came out of nowhere (they all do. Where on earth are they?). I screamed. Looked around for my protective furry doggies (who only opened one eye before going back to sleep) and I sucked it into the vacuum!
Now the vacuum doesn’t kill it. It has a compartment that you empty when it’s full and it was in there, running around with all its legs. So I was able to take the entire thing outside and release my unwanted house guest.
We live in the country. It’s truly beautiful. But it’s full of bugs.
There are insects here that defy comprehension. One was so large it looked prehistoric, like it had managed to skip evolution altogether to come to our living room. Another appeared inside our washing machine. After my discovery-shriek had stopped shaking the rafters, I wondered how on earth it had managed to get in there. Others come by the hundreds.
You’d think we would leave but it’s peaceful in the country, the dogs love it and finally, some times, we get this…
She was outside my bedroom window this very morning.
